I have read many posts of late about different types and desciptions of having a cloudy head and no energy, poor concentration poor focus and vision at times etc............
For some 12 months and possibly more i have been experiencing the cloudy head type feelings, with exteremly poor concentration levels where i just lose focus on a piece of paper,computer screen when reading and even to the point of having no really concentration when driving either. Along with this i feel jittery, sore jar at times and my head is buzzing. I also get a type of metallic taste in my mouth alot of the times, mostly in the morings. It is just very unsettled from these types of feeling.
I am a very fit and active person doing alot of a cardio and weights training most days of the week and i eat very healthy most of the time.
To try and explain this alot better is very very hard as i have no idea what it is. I would say it is like me wanting to drop a bomb in my head and it explodes and it then becomes all clear again and i am able to function like i used to some time ago good concentration, memory etc.....
I am very much the thinker of all things from my future to just general things. I have seen other doctors regarding this and depression issue (which i used to take medication for along time ago) only to just be made to feel silly and foolish.
I am now a the point where alot of things are suffering in my life like study, my job being in a relationship and just overall i feel extremely vague as i can not communicate or retain anything at all.
I am looking for help and possible natural remedies that i could try to clear up these problems for me to be back to my very bubbly best and feel some what smart and creative again.
Can you please give me some advice on this as i am sure there are lot of other people that have spoken about the same types of feeling.
Can you please give me some advice than i can take the step to feel clear and bright again.
Just reading thru your post and I was thinking about my own situation and I often have the cloudy head and poor concentration. I have gone to several Dr's regarding and I have been diagnosed with low vitamin-d, and migraines. I notice that toward the beginning of spring is often the worst involving the cloudy head. I also have some mild allergies in spring and fall. My migraines are worst on low pressure days. I too am very active and eat healthy. Do you have a really good health food store you could go to? I have a place I go to by my work and I can tell them what is going on and they know just what I need.
Cloudy mind and poor concentration with pressure in temples
Thank for your response. Yes i have many health food store near me and have visited them with what i feel but they do not seem to have any real help.
will just continue to see how it envolve or i get better.
I do not suffer from migraines at all and do not often even get any headaches.
It is more like a lot of pressure in temple region as well for me.
Most people just say it is either depression or stress.
Surely there are others options instead of being on strong med's. Looking for more natural ideas.
thanks for the response.
I will give your suggestion another try.
Hi, WorryingLG. I'm experiencing the same things myself where no physicians can explain what this is...basically to sum it up, it's cloudy head, eye pressure, and extreme lack of concentration. I have pending test results of Celiac disease and an appointment with a neurologist in a few days. I've been battling with this and seeing physicians for nearly 3 years! I've had almost every test under the sun done and everything comes back normal. And I'm fed up, as I'm sure you are. I will post my results of everything once I find out what my neurologist has to say about it, because my symptoms seem to parallel what you explained quite a bit. If you have new information, please share! If not, I'll be posting on here again soon hopefully with some helpful information.
hey i have these exact symptoms too! since i can remember ive been like this and have no idea what to do about it, ive had eczema my whole life so i put it down to the lack of sleep that comes with it and the wearing down of my cognitive development over time...hoping i can get it back, really isolated now and lonely and frusterated that life is passing by whilst im standing on the sidelines in my head, want to be at full life living potential!! thinking about taking lexipro or zanex, is there any real help out there?
Piccard! If foggy head and lack of concentration is an issue then you DO NOT want to take Xanax. It causes permanent short term memory loss and you can say Buh-bye to whatever concentration you have left. I, too would love to know what the Dr said to Jake. I have been dealing with this forever and have taken Xanax regularly for about 20 yrs and was told by MANY specialists that it's not coming back if that is the cause. The damage it causes is permanent. Bummer huh?
Hi me to i have similar symptoms cloudy/foggy brain difficult to think or concentrate, no energy just want to sit of sofa what TV fall a sleep often (all weekend) and vision poor. i thought it was sinusitis as my teeth / jaw ached at time and i get white discharge from my nose at times but seem to have cured that with by nasal irrigation and Avymis nasal steroid spray. both definitely help my sinus issue but i am still getting bouts of the above but now without the teeth/jaw ache. at the same time occurrence are less and mainly jan/feb in middle of winter. good luck all
Foggy head, poor concentration, lack of energy could be due to toxic heavy metals in your body. You can go to a naturopathic doctor to get either a heavy metal test either one done by a hair analysis or through urine examination. They say urine test is more accurate. I tested very high levels of Mercury back in 2006 after feeling a lot of the symptoms you all described, went through chelation treatment along with a good diet and felt much better. The problem is I never went back to retest my levels. For the last 5 months i've been feeling low moods, poor concentration, cloudy head and fatigue. went back to get tested and they found again very high levels of mercury. so right now going through chelation treatment again. crossing fingers it works again. hope this gets to you all in best of health and spirits. we will get through this!
Hey guys, I don't know if you're still dealing with this, but I recently got over the exact same thing.
For about 3 weeks I had a lack of energy, inability to wake up refreshed, drunken heaviness in my head/eyes, almost like my brain was surrounded by syrup, difficulty concentrating, disorientated driving, poor coordination... I felt slow, mentally physically emotionally; in every way that I hadn't before. I didn't feel like myself. Granted it was early spring, and i've always had seasonal allergies, but this was like nothing i'd ever felt before. I know the difference between sinus pressure and a foggy, heavy head. It didn't feel natural. So I started looking through forms like these to see if anyone found a solution.
Eventually I did my own research/experimenting... I'm pretty sure my symptoms are from stress, but it goes a little deeper than that... i've always been a spiritual person, not an extremist, and not particularly religious, I just strived for balance in every part of my life. The week that the feeling started was the same week I was completing portfolio presentations and trying to scrape up as much time as I could to complete other assignments on time, and work, and maintain a relationship. Long story short, I was stressed, and I retreated into myself like a brown recluse spider. I didn't have the balanced life that I strived for, and I was bending the fiber of who I was to accomplish everything on my plate so-to-speak.
I stopped caring. I looked at school, work, and my relationship with the same weary indifference. It wasn't until right now that I took a breath, sat down and spent some time for myself. I closed my eyes and mentally erased the task agenda from my mind. Then I started noticing where the slow feeling was really coming from. I felt heaviness in my head, but also near my solar plexus. A weighty burden... If you believe energy travels through your body, mine was blocked. When I rueled out a rational physical cause I was lost.. I ended up researching chakras and found this
I could really relate to both of these, and after about 20 minutes of focusing on the issue I felt like myself again.
If you're in the same boat, try those out. Just a little outside the box food for thought
Wow what you posted so sums me up. I have had these symptoms all my life and have never know what to do as I can not identify what the under lying problem is. Any advise would be so appreciated cause I'm totally at a loss what to do about it
